Classic Car Overview

This is a nearly perfect restoration of a 1941 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible Coupe. Having been a multiple award winner, including the AACA National First at Hershey in 2012, this has been said to be the most correctly restored example in existence, having been the recipient of the national Cadillac LaSalle Club (CLC) 2014 Ansel Sackett Award for the most authentically restored 1941 Cadillac . This has also been an award winner at the Greenwich Concours. This Cadillac was bought new and lived its entire life in Connecticut. It was purchased by Frank Peters from William Mandi on June 20, 1977. Mr. Peters then set out on a slow but deliberate restoration to make it the most accurate and thorough restoration possible. He was fortunate to have purchased a large cache of New Old Stock Cadillac parts and used a multitude of the NOS parts on this car. Mr. Peters passed before completing the restoration, but his daughter completed it partly as a tribute to her father. Every piece of this car has been restored to new condition. This was a no expense spared restoration which is documented in photos, some of which appear in the photo gallery. The livery was completed in the correct Valcour Maroon metallic in the original Nitrocellulose lacquer. While stunning in appearance, it does exhibit a couple small cracks and blemishes that were the trademark of this lacquer. Having said that, the accuracy and authenticity of the restoration is underscored in the finish of the paint. It is obvious that this is the not over-restored base coat clear coat that is seen in most all of todays restorations. The chrome and other details are excellent and the car presents itself very well. It is ready for concours competition today. The interior is nearly perfect. The maroon leather is gorgeous and is soft and supple. The dashboard is finished in the correct wood-graining and is gorgeous. This Cadillac breezed through our thorough inspection. Everything works as it should. Cadillac made great strides in styling for 1941. For the first time, headlights were fully integrated into the front fenders, and a horizontal-theme grille stretched from side to side. The hood was made front-opening for the first time, and the gas tank filler was hidden in the left rear taillight, a feature that became a Cadillac hallmark. Hydra-Matic, General Motors new fully automatic transmission, became available for the first time. While many manufacturers have offered convertibles only in their most expensive series, Cadillacs sole soft top was usually in the 62 Series. Such was the case in 1941, when this handsome model was manufactured. Equipped with a vacuum-powered convertible top, it was available only as a Deluxe model, which included rear fender skirts, wheel trim, and other decor items. This configuration makes for the perfect CCCA, CLC or AACA show and tour car. The reliable and powerful V8 paired with the Hydra-Matic makes for the perfect CARavan motorcar.
